Hi,
I am interested in finding out what policies are in place in other aged care facilities with regards to happy hour. We have a mobile happy hour trolley for those who do not wish to attend. One of my concerns is that our residents are becoming frail and their dietary requirements are changing and the activity staff with the mobile trolley are leaving alcohol and nibbles and are not always advised of dietary changes. I am concerned that the lifestyle staff are putting the residents at risk as well as themselves should there be an incident.
I welcome your thoughts, opinions and policies.
Regards
Heather

Hi,
I was wondering if lifestyle staff in other aged care facilities are expected to assist residents at meal times who require full assistance.
I would appreciate your opinions and thoughts on this
